NEW YORK, Nov. 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- PR practitioners can attest: Public relations has been transforming at a rapid pace. Digital disruption has given birth to new opportunities across a multitude of channels, and the art and practice of public relations has evolved to incorporate the use of advancing technologies, revolutionized tactics, updated success metrics, and so much more.
PR Newswire recently used social media to ask its customers and industry professionals to answer the question: "PR is now ____." and share how public relations has changed since we originally released our popular #PRis infographic in 2012. Responses were compiled into a new and updated infographic on the company's Beyond PR blog, The Future of PR Is Now.
Thoughts on the past, present and future of PR ranged from insight on relationships and reputation management to the drive to meet business goals and impact bottom line results.
Some trends were observed when comparing answers to those given for the 2012 infographic:
The idea of PR being "digital and socially driven" is more of a given today versus three years ago.
In 2012, there was a hint at PR moving into the marketing spectrum, and that future is now.
While relationships remain at the heart of how we define PR, there's a new emphasis on the importance of interaction, conversation, and conversion.
